Summary Table of Contents Industry Coverage Methodology

Industry Trends

Global Chlorine Dioxide Market size was over USD 795 million in 2019 and is estimated to grow at over 5% CAGR between 2020 and 2026 owing to significant expansion of the industrial wastewater treatment sector. Growing regulatory restrictions on the usage of chlorine and hypochlorite in pulp bleaching should boost the adoption of chlorine dioxide.

The product is witnessing rising demand from the pulp & paper industry owing to the growing adoption of paper packaging products on account of the significant expansion of the retail and e-commerce sector. The growing demand for pulp from the textile industry and increasing consumer preference for personal hygiene products such as tissue papers and disposable towels should further drive the chlorine dioxide market growth. Chlorine dioxide is an ideal ingredient of the pulp bleaching process to produce pulp with higher brightness.

Chlorine Dioxide Market Outlook

The rapid outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020 led the disruption of international supply chains thereby resulting in widespread shortage of critical medical devices. Many countries have attempted to ease this shortage by increasing imports and boosting domestic manufacture. However, the demand for medical devices is in excess of what domestic manufacture can deliver. The aforementioned factors are likely to hinder the chlorine dioxide demand which is widely used as a disinfectant for laboratory and medical equipment.

U.S. regulation 21CFR173.300 states that chlorine dioxide may be used as a food additive provided it is obtained by prescribed production methods such as the electrolysis of sodium chlorite or the treatment of sodium chlorate with hydrogen peroxide. The regulation allows chlorine dioxide to be used as an antimicrobial agent in water for washing fruits and vegetables or poultry processing in a concentration not exceeding 3 parts per million. This regulation should stimulate the chlorine dioxide market revenue from the U.S. food & beverage industry.

Increasing requirement of water reuse to drive the demand for chlorine dioxide from industrial water treatment sector

Chlorine Dioxide Market by Industrial Water Treatment Applications

Get more details on this report - Request Free Sample PDF

Chlorine dioxide consumption in industrial water treatment applications should surpass 125 kilo tons by 2026. Growing industrialization and urbanization has contributed to water pollution thereby increasing the requirement for industrial water treatment. Industrial processes require water with specific pH levels, water hardness and total dissolved solids (TDS) as the raw water intake involves water of varying compositions such as freshwater, seawater and groundwater. Chlorine dioxide serves as an effective biocide in the treatment of process water, food processing and cooling towers.

The voluminous amount of water required in industrial processes coupled with the adverse effects of contaminated water on industrial equipment such as lodging of debris and chemical contamination should drive product demand. Rising water shortage has increased consumer focus on water reuse which requires appropriate water treatment. Growing technological advancement in the industrial wastewater treatment industry along with significant expansion of the electronics sector has increased the requirement for unique treatment solutions to remove exotic metals should boost the chlorine dioxide market growth.
